Our LWB F350 came with 11500 GVWR and I will have to look at the plate to see what the payload is. It definitely is the best truck we have ever owned. We have the 20 inch tires and wheels.

Can anybody confirm that these changes apply to all 2011 Superduty trucks. That they just revised the ratings versus actually making physical changes to the latest batch of trucks?

My rear axle is rated at 6290, but the new info rates the rear axle at 7280. If that info applies to my vehicle, I could sleep better at night.

Not sure if this answrs your question.My understanding is job 2 trucks had a change in frame member to be able to increase rating.Increased weight ratings do not affect earlier trucks.Early trucks can get program change for HP & torque increase.Check FTE fourm lot of info there.Side note I had reprogaming done and now getting less MPG when not towing.

Legally you would have to have a new sticker on the door post to change any rating. You have plenty of room/capacity rating for any of the Heartland products with normal cargo loading.

Job 2 August 16, 2010 had a frame change, but I think it only applies to DRWs.

Different steel in the frame, towing upped to 22600 form 20300 (regular cab)

Truck ratings may go up but do not overlook the truck tire load ratings ratings................Read the numbers on the tire.
